Forum Post: Forget about making employers offer birth control...

Why not just tax them for it and provide it automatically and universally? This would cover non employed women as well, what is wrong with this plan?

Right, so we can stop trying to make employers offer birth control, right? They will find a way out of it anyway.

[-] 1 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 2 years ago

not always

What is wrong with the government taking over the whole thing and offering birth control automatically to every one?

[-] 1 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 2 years ago

sound like a good plan

er sorry

They will find a way out of it anyway.

not always (accidental pregnancies happen) in the context of our current society

I'm personally asexual but, i think we all should get the same allotment for sexual protection than others mine just happens to be a tazer and security cameras.

No I meant, employers will find a way out of offering birth control, so let's just take it out of their hands and make the world a utopia where no one ever gets pregnant.

I'm all for mandatory sterilization of large numbers of citizens.

If I have to pay for their birth control, this is just one step further and has a much higher rate of effectiveness.

Well, if you mean "large groups of people" as in, rich white people, maybe that's something I can get behind, it will help our children down the road in The Great and Final Struggle.

If you're referring to poor people who CAN'T AFFORD CONTRACEPTION, but can somehow afford CABLE TELEVISION and CHROME ELECTROPLATED RIMS, then my suspicions are confirmed and you are a EUGENECIST MINORITY HATING TROLL, in which case you may go solder yourself.

I prefer needle plasma arc to solder.

That shit makes me giddy and goose pimply.

Look, don't worry about who I will sterilize or not, rest assured I will not discriminate and the resulting numbers of non-breeders will certainly have a profound and positive effect on our world.

If it makes you feel better, I can do it by lottery although I do reserve the right to subject selected specimens to more rigorous "hands on" examination and consideration processes.

I'm not sure I want to give you the power to randomly grope and sterilize people. As a liberal, I always question authority, and letting individuals have groping and clipping privileges is something I usually reserve only to Democrats because they are the only ones I can trust. I will go along with it, but only if you say you are a Democrat. I do like your use of the word "Lottery", because it is not predatory on people with poor math skills and it helps people like the lottery directors who make seven figures.

Of course I'm a democrat!

You've read the amazing brilliance I spew, how could I be anything else?

Potentially groping, fondling and probing potential lottery winners may absolutely be necessary in the name of art and science.

Both of which, especially art, are more important than food and water.

As the director of several departments and wearer of many hats, I'll require compensation in the hundreds of millions, plus perks.

I'll need a fleet of limos, tour buses and airbuses to spread the word about my lottery and global warming. I'm also thinking I'll need sponsorship money to give eco-friendly champions like NASCAR, the NHRA and other select groups.

Advise the comptroller that any strip club debits on the cards are strictly charitable contributions.

See? I am a democrat and maybe even religious.

[-] -1 points by JuanFenito (847) 2 years ago

Alright, you had me when you said "democrat"!

Your buses and vehicles sound like they might pollute some, but if you slap a solar panel on a few of them or run them on E15 I'm okay with it.

Then you had me even more when you said "Art" and "science"!

I am skeptical of your "compensation", but as long as you are not in the private sector, I am down with it.

I don't know what NASCAR and NHRA is, but I shall look them up and get back to you. It sounds good, whatever it is. Any debit purchases are okay...

...

But WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU MIGHT BE "RELIGIOUS"???? THAT KILLS IT, MAN! WE CAN'T HAVE SOME RELIGIOUS PERSON IN THE GOVERNMENT!!!! YOU'RE A FAKE.

[-] 0 points by SmeggitySpooge (78) 2 years ago

You'll warm up to it when the rituals are explained to you and you attend a few "worships".

Small sacrifices must be made, yanno.

Democrat democrat democrat.

btw... I'm a grand master finger painter.

i agree, i think all children should be created invitro by randomly mixing sperm with womens eggs and anybody who wants to have a child should be fertilized by invitro. All men and women will have to donate, i certainly dont want a child. But natural sex is disgusting.

[-] -1 points by JuanFenito (847) 2 years ago

It is disgusting... except for homosexual stuff.

[-] 1 points by Coldinflorida (50) 2 years ago

its all disgusting .. but that is just how I feel and it seems to have so much control over peoples lives. The only reason to have sex in my mine is to procreate, and now that society can have children invitro, i dont think that children should be created randomly without the social biases and the idea that children are something that belongs to someone.

[-] -1 points by JuanFenito (847) 2 years ago

You take that back! Homosexuals are not disgusting!

[-] 2 points by Coldinflorida (50) 2 years ago

to me it is. to you it might not be. Everyone has a right to be who they are.
